Keeping track of UAE's eye in sky

An antenna moves slowly across its arc of movement, tracking the orbit of a satellite passing over the country.
Inside a control room, computers whir into life as the satellite beams back images taken during its last 100-minute journey around the earth.
This is the day-to-day work of scientists behind the launch of the UAE's first government satellite, DubaiSat-1.

UK-DMC2 satellite delivers first images just one week after launch
Just over one week after the launch of the UK-DMC2 satellite on 29th July, the first full resolution commercial grade image has been acquired and processed.
This first image shows the states of Texas and Oklahoma, USA. The DMC satellites are specifically designed to image very large areas with rapid response and at regular intervals, as shown in this first multi-state image. The new satellites can image much larger areas in a single pass than the previous DMC satellites due to advances in on-board storage and high speed satellite downlinks to the Earth.

Britain's latest imaging satellite has returned its first pictures.
UK-DMC2 was launched with a twin spacecraft, Deimos-1, on a Dnepr rocket from Kazakhstan last month.
The platforms have joined the Disaster Monitoring Constellation, which is used to obtain rapid information about areas struck by natural calamities.
UK-DMC2's test pictures of the US states of Texas and Oklahoma show the satellite is performing to its design specification.

SSTL successfully launch two further satellites
With the successful launch last night of the UK-DMC2 and Deimos-1 satellites, SSTL has expanded the capability of the worlds only spaced-based disaster monitoring system, the Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC). The British built satellites were launched onboard a Dnepr rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 18:45 UTC on Wednesday, 29th July 2009.
Following confirmation of separation from the launch vehicle, ground stations in Guildford and Spain established contact with UK-DMC2 and Deimos-1 respectively and commissioning of the satellites is now progressing.

The UAE's first Earth Observation Satellite was scheduled to blast into orbit on Wednesday evening.
DubaiSat-1 was due to launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 10.46pm with five other satellites from around the world.
It was to be launched aboard a converted Dnepr rocket through the Moscow-based International Space Company (ISC) Kosmotras. DubaiSat-1 will provide the UAE with its first dedicated 'eye in the sky'.
